Secrets of the Lighthouse, by Santa Montefiore

Ellen Trawton has successfully escaped her smothering aristocratic existence in London, desperately seeking peace and solace in her aunt’s cottage on the craggy coast of Ireland, just beyond a haunted lighthouse. A new romantic relationship presents itself, but the ghost in the lighthouse, of a young wife and mother unable to let go, stands in the way of Ellen’s happy ending. In thrillingly lyrical prose, Montefiore’s portrait of two struggling women demonstrates love’s ability to hold us back—and propel us forward.
